Funny Little Side-effect of 1.16Follow

#1 Mar 08 2011 at 4:59 PM Rating: Excellent
For all you crafters out there... When SE changed the rank of certain local levequests it appears they made it so that, even though what was in your journal as a rank 1 has potentially been changed to a rank 25, you still create the rank 1 requested item from before the change. However, you're rewarded with the rank 25 rewards.

I just got guild marks from the rank 1 Armorer leve I picked up before the patch (which was changed to a R25) Smiley: lol
Now obviously, this will only effect the people who happened to have leves in their journal at that time that were changed, and is a one-time "bug", if you can even call it a bug. But I thought this was amusing. I don't even plan to take ARM to a rank where I'll be getting guild marks, and now I've got 768 Smiley: lol

Speaking of levequests, I logged on last night to take another look around and noticed that I have 5-6 levequests with nothing listed in the Reward section. Have they added the ability to abandon quests?

You can trade in those leves at the next reset (35 hours from now) if just picked those up today.

Theres more to it that that Osarion, just look at this post i put in the feedback forum about the database mix up.

With the pic i took, it made something totally different then what the leve said, was shocked i breezed though it but more so when i saw the final product wasn't what was on the leve.

lol yeah this happened to me as well. I had completed a R20 or 25 lev pre-patch and then after the patch it turned into a R45 lev. I turned it in and low and behold I received 1200 guild marks. I was pleasently surprised and happy!
#6thejones, Posted: Mar 09 2011 at 8:29 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Funny side-effect of 1.16 for me is that I'm now playing RIFT and can barely bring myself to log in to FFXIV. Funny how a bad patch that makes a mediocre game worse will do that.

The effect on me was amplified. My rank 20 local levequest transformed into a rank 45 local levequest.

Astonishing, and great observation from the OP.

Hehe, somehow you've eneded up with more Armorer mark than I have Osarion!

Off topic: For a limited time only I want to see how these sigs show up.
